The structure of the elbow to the wing chun system is basic and the learning of the vertical punch (yat kuen chon gee) is a prime example of this, not only by serving as a technical defense simultaneous attack, but which enables the learning of families techniques style, since the movement of the elbow is the same for other locks held and also to other types of attack wrist and palm, and the need to learn to move without punch shoulder, that makes it work exactly the area of the arm responsible for this type of technique. In application, the fact that moving the shoulder causes a bodily imbalance, which can be very well used by the opponent. When there is the mess the shoulder with tension, there is a loss of power for the explosion , ie , the energy that runs through the body does not reach the point of contact of the attack , in the case of the punch , the fist. Instead of the force of explosion occurs very much a push. The yat kuen chon gee , is known as vertical punch due to wrist position themselves vertically , or punch arrow, by moving in a straight line from the starting point to the end point, resembling an arrow shot . The strength of the punch is at work for relaxation and muscle flexibility , joints , tendons and bone alignment . The fist properly and wrist flexibility and firmness at the end of the movement are also of paramount importance , trained in the position sau kuen . The contact area is not restricted to the joints of the fingers , but also the phalanges . Over time, the force of the punch is increased by training different in the air, and bag wall, which influence the closing of the handle , and adding the rotation of the approach ( chor m ) , applying , generating still more power to the punch . As an application , the vertical punch is used simultaneously along with any technique or blocking as its lock , called siu kuen kuen ; punch against punch. Soma is also the yat kuen chon gee movements , from the inside out and outside-in . Within the principles of the Wing Chun style , using the punch with a maximum power , but keeping balance, placing extreme power in a coup without correct structure brings great balance to the attacker if there is an initial block , or dodge , allowing the opponent a condition of reaction, but this does not mean that the punch should be without power , on the contrary, must always quick effect and cause the opponent . Usually the vertical punch is shown as one inch punch ( chon ging kuen , a version of the punch vertically at a distance of an inch ) , when performed in demonstrations ; person ( using guard ) who receives the attack is shifted behind. It is important to clarify that this shift occurs exaggerated statements with the purpose to not receive damage by impact , because the type of energy concentrated in a short attack causes the person receiving the blow feel a huge internal heat in the affected area and the higher the resistance , the greater the internal damage (in the actual situation the person collapses , bends to your own point ) . In Wing Chun concern is always in possession of the center line , and obviously attacking . The gee chon yat kuen is so fundamental , as it meets all the papers , without using too much physical effort as it does not depend on muscle mass and muscle longilineal yes .
